Financial Aid

Financial aid refers to a variety of financial aid sources available to help you pay for college. It is money in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study, loans, or a benefit from completing community service or military service, institutional tuition payment plans, all to help students pay for education. 

At Fine Mortuary College, we participate in the following assistance programs.

Federal Pell Grants

The Federal Pell Grant is a federally funded program designed to help the neediest undergraduate students continue their education. All students applying for financial assistance at Fine Mortuary must apply for a federal Pell Grant. Eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant is based on financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and satisfactory academic progress. Applications and additional information are available in the Enrollment Office at FMC.

The exact amount of the Federal Pell Grant award will depend upon the expected family contribution (EFC) as listed on the Student Aid Report, the Cost of Attendance (COA) and the number of hours for which the student enrolls.

Federal Supplement Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Federal FSEOG program provides assistance for eligible undergraduate students who show greatest financial need, are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant and are making satisfactory progress toward their educational goal. The actual amount of the grant will vary depending on the availability of funds at FMC, the student's family financial situation, other financial aid the student is receiving and the number of hours for which the student enrolls.

Federal Direct Loan Program

Fine Mortuary College participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. This loan program allows students and the parents of dependent students to borrow funds directly from the federal government to help meet the financial costs of a college education.
